About me
I’ve been working as a graphic designer for over twenty years. In this time, I’ve worked in public and private sectors, covering a diverse range of organisations from design agencies to publishers. I began my career working on websites and over time my career has evolved to include print, editorial, pitches and brand roll-outs as well as expanding my existing digital knowledge. The technical skills that I can offer are a thorough knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite applications such as Indesign, Photoshop and Illustrator and basic After Effects and Figma. In terms of personal skills, I can work autonomously or within a team; I can hit the ground running and turn work around quickly. I’m also able to work under pressure and I’ve often been described as 'unflappable'.
